    This Site Is Giving Me a Virus

    I'm pretty sure of it. It's called PUA.WASMcoinminer. It always comes after I visit this site.

    I've been getting it for about 1.5-2 weeks. My protection always catches it, but that doesn't mean that I'm not concerned. I'm going to have to discontinue coming here on my home computer until I know this is resolved. Please let me know.

    It may be your computer is continuously infected and Women's Health is just triggering a reappearance. There are web pages dedicated to removing the virus.

    Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

    From a speech by Patrick Henry on March 23, 1775 at St. John's Church, Richmond, Virginia

        I have never seen it, not on my work computer, home computer, or work laptop after visiting this site. I always check my quarantine. That is so strange. I will contact the site administrators and see I they have heard of this.

          I contacted Nick, the CTO of the the site host and he discovered there IS a virus attached to one of the ads on the site. He will have it removed by Monday at the latest. However, he said that this virus will not affect anyones computer.

          Don't leave us Stillness. :-)

            My virus detection and malware software has not found anything and I've had no problem.

              I don't know if that's good or bad.

                am surprised it didn't show up
                a little box appeared and showed the virus and that it was removed

                thanks BD, the virus is not showing up on husband's computer anymore

                    I haven't found this virus on my computer. I am sure it'll be resolved soon. Still, it is good to have notified the moderators. I will be on the look out myself.
